Russell Ziskey Rates The Taliban: "They're Pussies!"
— Ace

400 homosexual-murdering boy-rapists flee before an Afghan-led NATO offensive:

Complete success is being claimed for the largest Afghan-led operation yet against the Taliban.

Afghan army forces and police have now purged the Nad Ali district of Helmand of 400 Taliban fighters, following a series of chaotic battles.

Allied commanders estimated 70 Taliban fighters were killed in the fighting, while many others fled or gave up their weapons.

Locals said that the dead included at least one senior commander, Mullah Abdul Bary.

"Of course there are some Taliban left in here, but they have dropped their weapons and they are hiding," said Colonel Rasoul, the commander of the 3rd Kandak, the best regular army unit in the fledgling Afghan security forces.

The operation, which began last week during the Persian new year celebrations of Nawruz, involved 400 Afghan security personnel, the biggest Afghan-led sweep yet in the Nato offensive in Helmand.

Crucially, it was also backed by local militias, whose commanders had sworn to remove the Taliban from their land.

The success means that much needed-reconstruction projects, postponed for months due to the Taliban presence, can now begin as planned.

Thanks to dri.

Meanwhile, the Bush Administration, desperately craving a pretext for war with Iran (Google it!), finally released the news that US troops killed an Iranian soldier in Iraq as he firing an RPG.

The action occurred last year. But you know, he's so jonesing to go to war with Iran he suppressed the information.

Until now, of course.

6 I'm leery of calling anything a "victory" where the vast majority of the bad guys escape. In Afghanistan, we kept congratulating oursleves for "disrupting" and "dispersing" Al Queda. That's not good enough to anything more than a temporary victory.

These guys have to be killed in place. We shouldn't be commencing any of these operations, if possible, without forces in place to smash those who are retreating.

In other words, absent surrender, the aftermath of every battle should resemble the "highway of death" from the first Iraq War.

Lets be fair, the Afghanis are gonna have to learn to fight for themselves, and they aren't gonna have us around forever to smash up the runners. At least the Afghanis are showing some resolve to at least chase away the Talibanis and jihadis. They're learning, they're a third world country with poorly educated people and limited resources, even with our help.

It takes a while to get where you can pull a move like cutting into the comm systems of your enemies, and sending directives to your enemy and having them take the order(I heard somewhere that we actually did this in the Gulf war). Or finding a column of tanks on a road, bombing the first and last in airstrikes, then annihilating the rest of the trapped rats, which I think you were referencing.

12 Give the Afghanis credit, at least they're sound like they're really trying. More than I can say for the Iraqis.

These taliban are like cockroaches. We shoot em up, they scurry away. We stand down, they all come crawling back.


Afghanistan needs a really really big bug bomb.

16 If they will mark time for the 08 elections they will save a ass load of virgins, and ammo, to win what they view as just another small battle in the larger war to rule the world under the banner of Islam. There next battle will be much shorter to win, when they arrive at the gate and Now  the poor country will know they can not expect any help from the free world and give up without a shot, and they will shout from the roof tops "Another one bites the dust" The Islamic war plan is a master stroke of warfare, the poor ass clowns who they oppose never saw the forest for the palm trees,and the Pussies the sheep elected to run our nation will out front to meet them at the gate waveing a white flag with a brand new tube if KY jelly. Islam has been at war longer then the free world and they will soon have the money not to build a A bomb, but to buy a few from the very people they wish to kill. The new leaders of the Congress and Senate need to start with the beard thing now, and order up the scarfs to cover the heads of Nancy, Hillary Finstein, and the other poor confused girls who hope to be crowned Queen in 08.

I'm begining to believe this whole hostage taking was a plot to jack up oil prices.


Higher oil prices, more money to do whatever these crazy bastards do with their money.
